Mom who took in suspected Florida shooter gets emotional

New York Post + 40 other

PARKLAND, Fla. — The family that was housing alleged school shooter Nikolas Cruz has virtually gone into hiding in the wake of Wednesday’s massacre, refusing to speak about the ticking time bomb who had been living under their roof. “I have no comment,” a visibly emotional Kimberly Snead, eyes swollen and cheeks reddened, told The Post outside her home Friday morning. “Please respect my family and my privacy now.” Snead and her husband — whose own 17-year-old son attends Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and was there when Cruz allegedly went on a deadly rampage with an AR-15 rifle Wednesday — took him in after his mother died in November, according to the family’s lawyer. “This family is heart-broken. They opened up their home to him,” lawyer Jim Lewis has told the Palm Beach Post. “They didn’t have any clues. They didn’t see anything in this kid, that he was a danger or that he harbored any ill feelings toward the high school.” It’s a starkly different story from former neighbors of the Cruz family, who say the troubled teen was known for torturing animals and that cops visited the home due to his behavior frequently — 39 times in seven years, according to police records. And someone “close to” Cruz knew he was about to snap just a month ago — reporting to the FBI that he had a “desire to kill people&#…

Trump: ‘Fake News Media’ is ignoring the real Russia story

New York Post + 6 other

Trump then quoted Goldman’s tweet from 8:57 p.m. Friday: “The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We [Facebook] shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Trump and the election.” Facebook said in October that 44 percent of the Russian ads were displayed before the election, and 56 percent were displayed after the election. The ads were seen by about 10 million Americans, Facebook estimates. Goldman also said that promoting Trump “was NOT the main goal” of the Russian ads. “The main goal o…

Books News: Hunting — and Haunted by — a Serial Killer

The New York Times + 1 other

Three days before she died, Michelle McNamara typed some notes in a cryptic to-do list on her laptop. Among the looming tasks: “Find out from Debbi D about flashlight.” “Find out from Ken exactly what he meant about the husband or the guy in the clown suit walking down the street.” The list cataloged potential clues she planned to chase down as she completed her book, “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark,” an exhaustive investigation into the identity of the Golden State Killer, who committed upward of 50 sexual assaults and at least 10 murders in California in the 1970s and 1980s. She never finished it.…

Senate fails to advance bipartisan bill for Dreamers

New York Post + 1 other

WASHINGTON — The US Senate failed to advance a bipartisan bill to expand border security and protect Dreamers, following dire warnings from the White House that the bill would be “dangerous.” The legislation — authored by Sens. Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota) and Angus King (I-Maine) — failed Thursday afternoon by a vote of 54-45. Sixty votes were needed for passage. The bill was seen as the best attempt to offer 1.8 million young immigrants a pathway to citizenship and provide $25 billion for a border wall system. But it didn’t include an end to family migration and the visa lottery system th…

New York Post + 1 other

WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs says the agency’s chief of staff has stepped down after an investigation found she had doctored emails to justify Secretary David Shulkin’s wife accompanying him on a European trip at taxpayer expense. The internal investigation by the department’s inspector general found “serious derelictions” by Shulkin and his staff and urged administrative action against Chief of Staff Vivieca Wright Simpson. Veterans Affairs spokesman Curt Cashour says Simpson “elected to retire” and the VA is opening…

What to Cook This Weekend

Good morning. I’m still messing around with this recipe for risotto with sausage and parsley (above). Julien Shapiro, who runs the butcher and charcuterie shop at 8 Hands Farm in Cutchogue, N.Y., got on me the other day about how I call for sautéing the onions before I toast the rice, and about how much stirring I do afterward, while adding the stock. Julien used to make risotto like that, he said, until the chef he was working for called him into the walk-in to tell him to stop. He paused then and looked at the ground and I realized he was telling me to stop, too. “You don’t want any moisture…

“Mr. Hixon, your support of our school’s athletic teams was unwavering especially for your favorite swimmers and water polo players! I want to do anything I can for this family,” the account set up by Veronica Sitaras read. Coral Springs High School athletic director Dan Jacob told the Sun-Sentinel that Hixon “would give you the shirt off his back.” “He does so much. That is terrible that it would happen to anybody. It is so senseless,” Jacob said. Marjory Stoneman Douglas student Jamie Guttenberg was also identified as among the dead. Her brother, Jesse, managed to escape the carnag…
